UN’s Falk wrote article that said Israel was “slouching toward nothing less than a Palestinian holocaust.”
Canada called on the United Nations Human Rights Council to dismiss its special investigator Richard Falk after he accused Israel of “genocidal” intentions against the Palestinians in a brief English language interview on Russian television.
“Canada has previously called for Falk to be fired for his numerous outrageous and anti-Semitic statements and these comments underscore once more the complete and total absurdity of his service as a UN Special Rapporteur,” Canada’s Foreign Minister John Baird said in a statement he issued on Monday.
I call on the United Nations Human Rights Council – once again – to remove Falk from this position immediately,” Baird said. He added that his country rejects Falk’s comments.
“Not only do these comments undermine the fundamental values of the UN, they also belittle the terrible genocides that have tragically taken place throughout history and around the world,” Baird said.
He spoke in the aftermath of Falk’s brief appearance on December 15 on Russia’s English television news program RT. Falk was interviewed for only a few seconds as part of a larger program on Israel that included an argument that it was Israel, not Iran, which had a dangerous nuclear program.
Falk was asked about a past article he had written in which he said that Israel was “slouching toward nothing less than a Palestinian holocaust.”
Falk told RT, “When you target a group, an ethnic group and inflict this kind of punishment upon them, you are in effect nurturing a kind of criminal intention that is genocidal.”
Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor also attacked Falk’s statements. “This man has already branded himself as the radical version of extremism,” Palmor said.

Anti-Zionism leads people into all kinds of errors. One of them is wild and baloney accusations against the state of Israel.
The UN special envoy reduces the word “genocide” to a joke. The loss of life’s among the Arabs, because of Israeli law and enforcement, are in their hundreds. And most of the deaths on the Arab side, are caused by Islamic inspired hostility against the Jewish state.
Even a child will be able to understand how Arabs keeps on harming their own interests.
To use the word “Holocaust” to defame Israel, is so off the mark that we must question if the old professor is demonized. He might be in deep need of deliverance.
Repent, or perish.
